Poinsettia Stamped Candles

It was Martin's Mum's birthday yesterday and she absolutely loves candles and her favourite flowers are poinsettias. I decided to put together this arrangement after seeing this fab tutorial here for stamping on to candles. The candles/dish came from Tiger and the paper flowers from Hobby House. I've finished off with Anita's gold butterfly dimension stickers.

Valentine's Card

This is my Valentine's card for my boyfriend. As soon as I saw the Valentine Penny Black stamps I had to have them as they were so cute and I've put them to good use here! Martin has kept everything I've handmade him so far and treasures them (bless,) so I always try to make something a bit special and different. This card opens in an unusal way to reveal the message!

Little Musings Canvas

A little while ago I came across the blog of a really talented lady SJ. She does fantastic drawings called Little Musings, so I emailed her with a few photos of me and Martin and asked if she could paint a canvas for me to give him for Valentine's Day. This is the result and I absolutelty love it! The detail on his knecklace is amazing - I can't wait to give it to Martin and see what he thinks...

This is the photo which it's based on:

Boxer Get Well Card

I've made this card for my Granny as she's obsessed with Boxer dogs (I brought the dies especially) and has been in hospital for the last month with heart problems. She had a valve replacement and triple bypass on Tuesday so i'm going to visit her on Saturday. I wasn't happy with it at first then added the punched hearts and think it's growing on me.
